I mainly use these for kumihimo pieces and they are beautiful. Not overly oxidized and the edges are smooth and well finished. I recently had an Artbeads customer contact me in regards to specific sizing, so here it is: The inner diameter of the "top" or smaller end of the cone is 4.2 mm. The outer diameter at that end is 5.2 mm. The inner diameter of the "bottom" or larger end of the cone is 11.7 mm and the outer diameter is 13.0 mm for reference.
Looking at it, you can see that it was very well made and that they paid attention to details.
No sharp edges to catch.
Big hole at the top.
If you are using it for breading or kumihimo, the inside size across is slightly less than 1/2 inch.
It is a bit pricey, but I got it on special, and it is worth every dime to elegantly finish a pattern.
I love this cone as it's substantial and can be used easily with multi strand necklaces. Pair it up with Bali spacers to complete the look!
Looks great in the necklace.
